"How He Loves" | Jared Anderson

One of my favorite Jared Anderson songs. Isn't it awesome "how He loves us"!

He is jealous for me
Loves like a hurricane
I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight
Of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden
I am unaware of these afflictions
Eclipsed by glory
I realize just how beautiful You are
And how great Your affections are for me

Oh how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us so
Yeah He loves us
Oh how He loves us

So we are His portion
And He is our prize
Drawn to redemption
By the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean
We're all sinking
So Heaven meets earth
Like a sloppy wet kiss
And my heart turns violently
Inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way

Oh how He loves us so ...

The Chronicles of Narnia ~ C.S. Lewis

I am very excited, because this is my first guest post written by 15-year old Sarah Hampshire. She read The Chronicles of Narnia and I've asked her to write down her thoughts on the books. So here goes!!

Clive Staples Lewis was born on 29 November 1898 and he died on 22 November 1963. He is commonly known as C.S. Lewis and he was one of THE best authors that ever lived. He is known for his series of books called The Chronicles of Narnia. I recently read the entire set and it is one of the best set of books I have ever had the privilege of reading. The characters are well described, the attention to detail amazing and the way C.S. Lewis put small biblical truths in the books is so sneaky that if you did not know what they are, you would not notice them.
I personally think that the movies made based on the books do not do them justice because they leave out a lot of key detail. 
The books are about four children who get into Narnia and the adventures that they have while they are in Narnia. I would highly recommend the books to anyone who loves to read. Especially those of you who love a good fantasy / adventure read.

 I have to agree with Sarah, Narnia was definitely one of my favorite reads and the little life lessons in the books are priceless!
